Thinking of getting some of those Mechanix gloves. Fairly cheap, not bad looking.
should be about what you're looking for
Nitrile. More comfortable than latex.
yeah don't really need anything expensive. that's why I thought the mechanix would be decent. just being in this region, lots of time shooting in ~40-60 degree weather
yeah I never liked the plastic knuckles. thanks
I use kangaroo leather gloves with reinforced palms.
wow, those wiley's look nice.
i was thinking about getting gloves more or less to save my hands from a stupid mistake. it's probably a rare occurrence that there would be a misfire, or explosion, but it's better to be safe than sorry?
everything i've looked at seems like you have to sacrifice a fair amount of feel/grip for safety...
the oakley ones look nice for the price
I think the $35 ones are knock-offs though. Wonder how they'd hold up if you're not really an operator. Probably just fine
I have a pair of Hatch "Elite Marksman". They fit well and have real good tactile sensation and are pretty reasonably priced but I hardly ever use them. I got them mostly to have for some training classes I hope to taking this summer, so I guess I could give a better report then.
Ahh. Maybe see if one of my LEO friends can maybe get me some
if i do use gloves, it's under armour
i have a pair of hatch gloves:
I don't ware gloves to the range but I do put on a pair of welding gloves when I go pig hunting. Although those are mostly to keep my hands from getting torn up by the thorns and HEAVY brush of west Texas.
fail...ask me how I know.
I wore my dual layer softshell gloves yesterday. Too thick, I think I'm going to look at some glove liners at REI.
I race dirt bikes and just use my old motocross gloves. I hear a lot of troops over in Iraq use the same type of gloves. At least the series I race was collecting mx gloves to send to the troops (by request) last year.
